What is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting is a technology that uses the power of freezing to freeze and destroy fat cells through the skin. It's FDA-approved and is used to treat fat in the body, belly, love handles, glutes, back, arms, chin, and more. It's a permanent non-surgical fat removal treatment that minimizes the need for surgery.

CoolSculpting Elite is known as a cryolipolysis treatment. The freezing part of this procedure functions with intense cooling, which breaks down fats and freezes them without affecting tissue. In addition, it also uses ultrasound to freeze fat cells. The technology behind CoolSculpting Elite has been done through research and development for over 20 years by the Note Group, headquartered in Dallas, TX.

Does CoolSculpting Elite work better than CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting Elite is the best fat-freezing treatment on the market and one we are proud to offer! It is more powerful, easier to use, and more effective than CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting Elite only takes around an hour from start to finish. You will sit in a chair, and a nurse or technician will apply firming cream that minimizes any pain or discomfort from the cold. You will then sit with your device for an hour under a clear plastic cover that surrounds you.

The benefits of the procedure stem from its fat-freezing cryo technology. Compared to surgical methods, it's a more natural way to reduce the amount of fat in problem areas. It is one of the few fat reduction techniques offered by med spas that treat belly fat.

Does CoolSculpting Elite work for belly fat?

Yes, the freezing-tech that powers CoolSculpting Elite was developed to treat and is very effective to treat belly fat and fat areas around the love handles and back. It is one of the least invasive and practical techniques for treating fat today, requiring no downtime or recovery after the treatment and allowing patients to leave the office and get right back to their day.

Is one session worth it?

You can see results after just one session of CoolSculpting. Generally, they are apparent after three weeks. The treated spot begins to shrink as the fat cells are destroyed and removed by the body.

In the coming weeks and months, fat cells will continue to die.

How many treatments you need will depend on what you are trying to achieve, how much fat you want trimmed down, your dietary habits, exercise, and other lifestyle choices. The removed fat is gone for good, but the body can generate new ones.

Does CoolSculpting keep the fat off?

The fat cells destroyed through treatment are eliminated from the body and will not return. As usual, new fat cells can still be generated by the body, depending on your behaviors.

CoolSculpting Elite is not meant as a method for drastic weight loss. 

The treatment suits those with stubborn areas of fat that they would like assistance in removing from an otherwise healthy body. CoolSculpting Elite is for well patients looking to improve their physical appearance.

How is the fat removed from the body after CoolSculpting Elite?

The body's immune cells clean up the eliminated fat cells, eventually expelled through urine. The cells treated are destroyed and will never return.

How long does CoolSculpting Elite treatment take?

It only takes a few minutes to treat each area. As with many other medspa procedures, treatments are scheduled in a series. The frequency and schedule depend on the areas treated and the extent to which you'd like to change your appearance. In general, it's 1 or 2 sessions per month for a few months.

Is CoolSculpting Elite safe?

The procedure is non-invasive. There are no surgeries, cuts, or scars. For this reason, CoolSculpting is one of the safest and most effective procedures for fat reduction. The process is controlled by thermolysis technology that freezes fat cells to destroy them without causing damage to surrounding tissues.

CoolSculpting treatment can be done while you are fully awake and alert during the entire procedure. You will feel discomfort during the process, but only short-lived.

Does CoolSculpting Leave a fat-freezing line?

No. Unlike liposuction, there is no visible scar from CoolSculpting Elite. Most of the pain can be controlled by using med spas medicine.

What are the risks of the procedure?

There are no known risks of CoolSculpting treatment, though photosensitivity that may cause minor changes in skin color is possible after treatment; changes in skin hue will not affect your skin tone.

How long do I stay after CoolSculpting Elite?

You can stay in the facility for a few hours. There are no restrictions on your activities following your treatment. You will just want to avoid sun exposure for 2 to 3 days afterward.

Can I use makeup after CoolSculpting Elite?

You can use makeup after the procedure. However, you may experience dryness and irritation in your treated areas. This may last 2 to 3 days. Antibacterial creams and lotions help to relieve it. Also, if you use makeup on the treated areas to conceal them (e.g., if you plan to wear a bathing suit), you must first use a moisturizing cream.

How much weight can I expect to lose after CoolSculpting Elite?

While fat loss is permanent, it depends on your body type and treatment intensity.
